“These poems mythify the alligator attack that killed my dearest friend in 2006.

To write this book—to inscribe myself into its bloodstained ecology—I have to become a bird.

I have to transform into the airborne body that shares a dinosaur ancestry with alligators and remains their closest modern kin.

I do this without much thinking, as if the evolution of reptilian scales into feathers were an adaptation to grief.

Death,’ Edmond Jabès wrote, ‘means alliance.’”
